Similar Deviations
(Updated: I had some revisions I wanted to make to the original and felt they were too big to just place over the old submission so I have resubmitted it, sorry for any inconvenience :ahoy: )

As the title suggests this is a pretty crazy image, I am a huge fan of Napoleonic era naval battle paintings and I wanted to try and create a similar image but in space, a battle between 3 ships, 2 of them trying to take down the rather more advanced and skilled Dreadnought in the middle. In the distance a line of ships launches a volley of missiles towards the incoming ship knowing their 2 ships have fallen, one gutted by a powerful laser, the other suffering from a major reactor explosion.
Further in the distance a huge battle is being fought in a large dust cloud, it illuminates the inside of the cloud and creates a slit of light across the clouds opening.

The image also points out some gameplay features, one being how you can level up a ship, the Dread in the middle is very advanced, its seen a lot of combat so its crew knows the ship and its systems well and so can overclock all systems basically, hence the ultra laser. Also you may notice its hull has a distinct hexagonal pattern, this is another feature, if you upgrade the hull it will show. Also gun turrets will vary depending on the type.

In the space between planets a huge Fusion reactor was built to satisfy the ever growing need for energy. It creates small stars which it gets energy from, this energy is then transmitted to every world in the system. The power is immense, as new stars are created using a form of laser fusion huge dust clouds swirl and ignite. When the energy form a star is depleted is shrinks and dies in a controlled and harmless way. A convoy of ships approach the station probably to offload supplies and personnel.

This is my entry to the new Luminarium Exhibit themed Energy, always wanted to make a huge machine that makes stars hehe.

Do first contact situation ever go peacefully? Of course they don't because that would be boring.
Anyway what your looking at is a first contact situation between the Humans and the first alien race to go into the game Novus Aeterno the Verunas. I have shown some of their ship designs recently and this is the first full illustration with them in so it was nice to paint something other than Human V Human.

The Verunas aren't very friendly they are the most advanced race in the game and they know it, they are big headed both physically and mentally.

Also this painting will cover a 20ft wall at out booth at PAX in April which will be rather cool to see.

Enjoy

A promotional image done for the game Novus Aeterno by Taitale Studios who I have been working with for the past month or so on the game and with its talented team. Its a sci-fi MMORTS and will feature some pretty cool space battle.
The site is still in development but will be active in the next few weeks.

The latest illustration for the MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. Having spent the last month or 2 working on ship concepts and skins it was nice to break loose and paint another huge space battle. Since we have new models for just about everything now it made sense to paint an updated image.
The foreground ships consist of some Dreadnoughts (the tall big things) a few Battleships (Smaller vertical ships with an angled lower section) 2 Basilisk Capitol ships (the 2 giant things in the top left and bottom right corners) and a Laminar Capitol ship (the large ship just above the massive explosion firing off a lot of rounds)

That big explosion was caused by a rather well placed shot by the top left Basilisk right down the barrel of an enemy Basilisk, the resulting explosion was pretty big. The other Capitol ship in the right lower corner was quite lucky compared, a distant Manticore Capitol ship, which is a huge prototype laser cannon with engines, just grazed the ships sides, melting away layers of hull and ripping the shield.

Enjoy :ahoy:

This illustration was to show a sneaky fleet hiding next to an asteroid field waiting for their target to emerge from the other side at which point they unleash a nasty missile barrage towards them.

An early concept illustration for Telikos Protocol, a graphic novel project. The image showcases a large alien machine storming into a high value military base, as it lays waste to the surrounding equipment soldiers try to hold it off whilst personnel are evacuated.

And so it begins, a little behind the original planned date but we held back the goods on this game for a little longer but now begins a wave of releases and activity as we approach the games big reveal at PAX Prime 2011

I have been issued orders to release one illustration every day, work I have been doing now for some time as Senior 2D artist at Taitale Studios, some of the most epic and awesome work I have ever done are shown in these images and what better way to kick it off than with the biggest space battle image I've ever done, a panoramic view of space death, originally it had more lasers but it melted peoples eyes.

Stay tuned for more also for constant updates regarding info on the game and other concept work done by other members of our awesome art team head over to the games Facebook page and Twitter

New image from the graphic novel Telikos Protocol, visit the Facebook page to find out more: [link]

Whilst working on one of the pages this image stood out as being too awesome to keep under wraps until issue one is released, so we decided to throw it out there.
It shows two of the orbital rail gun platforms that orbit Earth used to safe guard it from asteroids, they are very big and very powerful. Enjoy :)

A print of this painting can be bought here [link]

A small group of marines make their way to towards the huge troop transport ship, USS Jackson, which is in "dry dock" waiting to take off. One marine stops and gazes at the ships sheer size.

Part of a new commission working on a game, the website for said game will be released soon so more information will be available then.
